Are you thinking about buying a new inkjet photo printer: If you are, then we have some news that could well be of interest to you. Canon U.S.A. has recently unveiled two brand new printers, the PIXMA MG5320 and the PIXMA iP4920, which both include upgrades to the pre-loaded Full HD Movie Print and Canon Easy PhotoPrint EX software.
If you’re looking for a multi-function printer, then the Canon PIXMA MG5320 wireless photo all-in-one printer might be just the model for you. As noted over on the macnews.com website, the Canon PIXMA MG5320 – which is priced up at $149.99 – comes with 5 individual ink tanks, and is capable of producing a borderless 4 x 6-inch photo in about 20 seconds.
The PIXMA MG5320 also boasts a 3-inch LCD screen, a maximum color resolution of 9600 x 2400 dpi and Advanced Media Handling options such as a two-way paper feed and Auto Duplex printing. As for print speeds, the MG5320 is reportedly capable of delivering output at approximately 12.5 ipm for black-and-white documents, and around 9.3 ipm for color.
However, if you are looking for a printer that’s slightly cheaper, then the Canon PIXMA iP4930 might be more for you. The iP4920 inkjet photo printer also comes with five individual ink tanks (which are part of the ChromaLife 100 + ink system) and a maximum color resolution of 9600 x 2400 dpi. The iP4920 has the exact same print speeds as the PIXMA MG5320.
The iP4920 is also capable of producing a 4 x 6-inch borderless photo in about 20 seconds. This model also comes with the Auto Duplex printing feature, which helps users conserve paper. Since it was first launched, the Easy PhotoPrint EX software has helped users to get the most out of their prints by allowing them to create stickers, albums and calendars etc.
This upgraded version on the other hand has added Fun Filter Effects, which are similar to the scene modes found on the company’s PowerShot digital cameras. Fun Filter Effects enable users to customize their images with different effects such as Toy Camera, Miniature and Fish Eye. Users also have the option of changing the focus of the image so it appears softer.
As we mentioned earlier, the Full HD Movie Print software has also received an upgrade, and should now producer clearer images of frames from videos that have been captured on any compatible HD Canon PowerShot or EOS digital camera. The software includes a new layout feature that will enable users to print up to 72 images on one sheet of paper.
